Are you hankering for a visit to Italy but you’re low on cash or time? Italy’s popular beverage brand San Pellegrino has created an opportunity for you to take a 3-minute digital vacation in Sicily for free.

San Pellegrino has built robots that explore the town of Taormina in real-time and stream live video broadcasts from the town. The five robo-tour guides drive around and interact with locals and tourists, while a skybot provides scenic views from above.

You can take your personal 3-minute vacation via the San Pellegrino Facebook app.

    That is too silly! (but I kind of like it 🙂 )

  2. It is silly, but as soon as I saw the video thumbnail (the first to show up) I was all “hey, that’s Taormina!” 🙂 *proud of recognizing the place from that alone*
